52 Poems: Week 3 – Sonnet

In watching the motion of a sunrise,

And feeling the gentle caressing breeze,

A thought occurs that leaves quite the surprise,

Amidst all the roaring waves on the seas.

Achievements of greatness satisfy,

But will last no longer than a moment.

When one thing is gained, success passes by,

Until goals reached once more bring enjoyment.

Through life we seek occasions of success,

The daily offerings of the present

Ignored while after triumphs we obsess;

Yet given us are treasures most pleasant.

In the day to day these we must employ,

The little things of life hold timeless joy.
